My husband and I just picked up a bed and mattress that we found on craigslist. My son will be getting this 'big boy bed' and his crib/toddler bed will go to future foster placements once we are licensed. When we pulled up to the house the family was out front playing with some sidewalk chalk; a dad, a mom, and a beautiful little boy. We told them why we needed the bed and the man informed us that they are foster parents. They were supposed to get twins so they rushed and bought 2 beds, but that fell through so they were placed with this boy and didn't need the second bed. What a coincidence. This bed is meant for a foster family one way or another.
